SEATTLE (AP) — Sue Bird is returning to the Seattle Storm for a 19th season after re-signing with the team. Bird missed last season after undergoing knee surgery. The last time she was on the court for Seattle, Bird was leading the franchise to its third WNBA title in 2018. She has played her entire career with the Storm after being the No. 1 pick in the 2002 draft. The 39-year-old is the franchise's all-time leader in points, assists, field goals and steals. Seattle is also getting former league MVP Breanna Stewart back from injury for the upcoming season.
